Im taking my camry to get the windows tinted tomarrow and need some advise.

I dont want the tint to be too dark so how much % should i do? What i really want is it to look factory, like the tint % on a Ford. What % is close to a factory job? and should i get the front done as dark as the rear?

dont kno which Ford model ur talkin about but i think it might be 35-40 %tint for the factory look. not sure tho so ask the place/person thats doing ur tint to give you a preview of what it would look thats what i did.

it look better when u get the windows all matching thats my opinion tho. it also depends on ur state laws etc.

its south carolina, so the laws are really slack.

the rear windows on ford trucks are what im looking for, dark enough that you cant see in well, but you can still see out of it fine.

35% all around and i like them
here in NJ its illegal to have any tints what so ever on the front windows.. but 35% isnt too dark and isnt too light
helps keep the cops off my back
35% is kinda dark at night.. but i can only imagine how much darker it would be with 20 or 5%

what is the average laws about tints in the state. I'm in chicago i have no idea what the laws are here so i just wanted to get a good feel about what %'s would be 100% legal and what %'s are kind of pushing it.

Not sure if camry's come in factory tints but if they did what percentages would they be around?

There was a link posted once that has the legal %'s of every state. Do a search.

Windshield tint strip shall be no more than 6" from top
No tint on front side windows
Any percent on rear side windows
Any tint on rear window*
Passed in 1984?

* If window tint is applied to the rear-back window, a right and left rear-view mirrors are required. Cars before 1982 model year are exempt from IL tint law.

does no one get reflective added too?
I've got a semi-metallic film that's semi-reflective. It looks good and can be seen through, but only at close range. Semi-metallic is legal in Tennessee, but mirror isn't.

I'm not bashing or anything, I'm just letting you know that there was a link once posted that had the legal % for every state.

oh ok :eek::

now the question is since there isn't any rules about my back windows i wonder what to get. I'm very tempted to do a little tint on front windows :D

I'm considering 40% back windows and maybe 75% in the front. is 75% that noticable? I never saw 75% myself.
